I've noticed it...I tend to forget member's screen names when they dont have an avatar. I try not to, but it happens. For whatever reason (maybe I'm a more visual person?) if someone doesn't have an avatar they fly under the radar more. I got to thinking about this when i was doing the goldmember voting. Some members who have been seriously helpful didn't even cross my mind until someone else mentioned them, and these are members without avatars. Am I the only one here like that? Do others find that a lack of avatar impacts whether you remember someone or not?
